Further Information

Please click on the tabs below for further entry information

You may already have an EventPlus profile if you’ve entered other cycling events within the last 12 months or our 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 or 2019 events. If you have a profile already you can quickly login with your email and password (reset available if you have forgotten this!) Or zoom through and create your profile which just has to be done once, then you can enter this year’s event and others. You can log in and update your profile any time, and create sub-profiles for others sharing your email address (like your partner & children).

This can be done by logging back into your registration using your email address and password up until 31 October. After this date everything is sent to print, so we are unable to change it until event registration on Friday 26 November. This is then a manual process to go to the Change My Start Group Desk inside the Great Lake Centre and they will make the change in the system for you and resticker your helmet sticker.



You’ll receive an email confirmation once you’ve entered and paid. (Check your junk mail if you haven't received it.) You can log in anytime and resend this to yourself if you lose it!
